Wow. Good work reverting that vandal. Feel free to email me if I don't see a note on my user talk page. Geo Swan (talk) 23:43, 5 March 2022 (UTC)


I saw you left your email address. I tried sending you an email, and it didn't work!

my email would have been

What is up with this 5+ day outage?

I looked at You are interested in weapons trade shows? Did you see ?

I was always careful, on WMF projects, to only use properly licensed images. On wikialpha I use images, for which I claim fair use, that I know would trigger a fair use challenge on the wikipedia, because there are a handful of people who are ultra strict there.

If you didn't take the photo of Anna, yourself, but you think "no free equivalent is reasonably available" should you claim "fair use"? I think it is worth considering.

As you know, it is not up to me as to whether you get trusted with administrator authority on wikialpha. But, so far, you seem to have been completely trustworthy. You are doing good work.

You can quote me!


Did you see this?

One of my email addresses is [email protected]
I am going to test to see if I can remove a single revision, with this one here, as soon as you use it. Cheers! Geo Swan (talk) 17:21, 16 March 2022 (UTC)
Can I draw your attention to this note, again? Geo Swan (talk) 03:28, 21 March 2022 (UTC)
I just sent you a direct email several days ago, but I still got this error message when I clicked email this user: "Unknown error in PHP's mail() function." WritingSnowman (talk) 18:22, 22 March 2022 (UTC)
  • You mean that, you got that error message when you clicked on [email protected]? Hmmm. Could you try just copying that email address, and going to your regular email app, and pasting that into the To: field?
I have uploaded images from booledozer's flickr gallery, so it is not really a secret that I use that ID.
  • Yeah, the email user feature isn't working. I think it may have been broken for a while. I don't know where to look to fix something like that. Even if I knew how, I don't feel authorized to try to fix internals.
Do you know how this feature works? It preserves the privacy of the receipient. The person sending the email doesn't know the receipient's email address. But, as soon as it is received, the receipient learns the sender's address.
Receipients then have the option of leaving a public reply, on the sender's talk page, or sending an email reply, where the other party will learn their email address.
If you are reluctant to use your mail app to send an email directly to the email address I offered you, in the clear, because you want to keep your email address a secret... well, that wouldn't work.
